When Buildings Collapse

Article by KA

Woo hoo! Friday is here! And what better way to celebrate it than to hope the place you are working in collapses over the weekend to give you some well-earned R&R.

OK so it's not likely, but it is pretty cool to watch buildings being demolished in a controlled way. It's also fun to see them collapse in an uncontrolled way too :D

I remember going to see Churchill House being demolished in Belfast. That was a lot of fun and so accurately done - the Kitchen Bar was very close to the 19-storey building but escaped undamaged when its neighbour fell. Check out the video coverage of the event on the page - outstanding.

So how could you possibly beat a 19 storey building collapsing? Well, in America they build big and so, naturally, building demolitions are a spectacular thing...Blamo!
